A Histrwry cf Selwyn Ffcuse School 


If one were to ask the- average Selwyn House student when 
the school was founded all he would be able to say weuld be 
" Yes, it was founded by Mr. Lucas "- that is, if one were 
lucky. This being the extent of the knoledge posessed about the 
history, the S. H', S, Examiner decided to run a series of articles 
on the history of Selwyn House School, this being the first. The 
information for this preliminary article was gatherd from an 
interview with Mr, Phillips, who so kindly co-opperated. • 

Selwyn House School was founded in 1908 by (Capt.) Mr, Lu^as 
at this time the school was located on G uy Street and werved 
as a prep school for boys , The number and age of the boys at this 

time is rather ha5d to dtermine, but from photographs of the first 
graduating class there appeared to have been 20 boys a^ the schoo 
the oldest being 10-11 years old, liT, Lucas seemed to have been 
a very kind hearted gentleman, who had a Foft spot for children. 
There are stories of I'lr. Lucas playing "Bear" on th^ floor with the 
boys. Besides founding tho school, l\r, Lucas also server in the 
army during an uprising in Ireland as a Captain, Rumoy has it that 
he 'vas shot by a snipper v/hile looking out of a windov^. Unfortunately, 

this is all we kndiw of i.r, Lucas, so before we go on to discuss 
Ij". Iiacaulay let us ansiver the question of why th - school colours 
of i.elwyn house are black and yellow, and why the school is called 
Lei Tyn House, Legend has it that the school colour§ were derived 
from the colours of racing stable, v;hile the name of the school 
v/qs derived from the name of a college at Cambridge. 

Our knoledge of fcr. nacaulay is even less abundant. The nature 
of the school was more or less in tactfc as it had been under ij?, 

Lucas, The School building had moved to new quarters on Sherbrooke 
Street and i-.acl'ay Street because of lack of facilities t the old 
building , By some shrewd investments and by inheriting some 
substantials sums, ij~, j.auqulay '..'as able to retire at in early 
age and very generously gave the school to I-jr, Janstall, who in re^ 
turn v;ould pay off the debt on the building, iir, ^/anstall paid off 
the debts very soon and then owned the school outright. He is re- 
puted to have been a strict disciplinarian and because of this, 
\irhile greatly respected, was less than popular with the students. 
He is also said to have roamed the halls in search of boys that 
had been ejected from the class, for if you were put in the hall 
you ivere obviously guilty of something. By thi^ time the school 
had been moved to Redpath Street into what jsed to be a private res- 
idence. This building was adequate at the time, and had a memorable 
fir-escape in the form of canvas chutes from the roof. Going down 
these was found to be so entertaining, that during a fire drill many 
boys '.rent down two or even three times, Fortunately this v;as one of 
the lighter moments, as the rest of t'l^e time Selwyr House ivas a very 
serious institution. There were no fane science courses qnd t'^e like 
just an expansded 3'b& program. The sports program v/as slightly bette: 
with soccer in the fall, hockey in the winter, and cricket and base- 
ball in the spring, i-jr, ./anstall was an avid sportsman. All games were 
played outdoors and even hockey at 25 below zero ! I-r, "Janstall died 
on V.£, day 1945 and the whole school attendedt the funeral in Christ 
Church Cathedral coincidentaly it was also a national holiday,

^ir• -/anstall left no will , and this left thecfuture of the school 
in serious .jeopardy. Fortunately a group of interested parents 
decided to buy the school from iir. /anstall's brother and formed 
a Board of Governors, A large amount of of the credit for this goes 
to Dr. i^peirs. The school continued to functio-- normally till it was 
once again moved to its present location. Here it continued to expand 
under the careful guidance of Dr. Speirs. The building was once arain 
expanded in 196f^ . I'lany of you rember Dr. Speirs, and describing hir. 
in two lines v;ould not do him justice, as it cannot do justice to 
any other headmaster. For this reason, starting in the next issue of 
the ilXAiilN^R, wo will treat each of the eras and headmasters

They arrived at "^uebec from France for the first time in 1723. 
They were divide"^ into tv;o classes: A) stray-sheep youths sent out 
under letters do cachet at the request of their relatives, but who 
retained their freedom upon arrival in New France: B) minor 
offenders such as t ose guilty of theft of feame. All served an 
apprenticeship of three to five years, after which they were at 
liberty to return to France, though a few v.-ere condemned to reiaaln 
in Canada for good. Including the arrival of the last group in 1749, 
About 660 such colonists came to Can.^da,

Mr. Seville took a group of 13 boys from the Selwyn House Examiner, 
on Saturday, 30 October to the Davie Shipyards in Lauzon. This town is situated 
two miles east of Quebec City on the opposite bank of the St. Lawrence River. 
At the point where the river begins to widen you will find the Davie Shipbuilding 
yards - Canada's largest shipyar-d and one of the oldest in the country. 

We left at 9.00 a.m. from the school yard and arrived two hours later. 
Colonel Yves josselin met us when we arrived and he and four other executives of 
the Davie Shipyards conducted us through the yards. 

The first part of oiir tour consisted of the inspection of the dry 
docks, where a badly damaged German ship was being repaired. All the early work 
in the building of the ships and the repair work is done in these dry docks, 
\ifhen the ships are far enough advanced to float they are generally put into the 
water alongside an outside dock, by a complicated mechanical procedure. This is 
where all the finishing touches are done. 

From the dry dock we went and visited the warehouse that deals with the 
metal sheets that are used throughout the construction of the ships. These sheets 
of metal come in all sizes and thicknesses and are sandblasted here on their 
immediate arrival. We were told how these metal sheets are brought to the 
cutting and painting machine and that various parts of the ship are constructed 
in different warehouses. These different parts are brought together and joined in 
prefabricated units and eventually welded together to make the whole ship. 

Enormous amounts of work on different projects are continually carried 
out at Davie Shipbuilding Company c For instance, they are presently working on - 

A) 3 - 80,000 ton ships. These are the largest ships ever to have been 
built in Canada. 

P) 2 destroyers for the Royal Canadian Navy 

C) The largest electro magnet in the world. 

The Davie Shipbuilding Company builds all kinds of industrial products 
such as I machinery, equipment, steel structures, penstock, railroad tank cars, 
tug boats etc. 

The strongest tug in Canada was built here at Davie Shipyards. It is 
named the "Tacky Veliotis". The boys, unfortunately, did not see this great boat. 
Perhaps this can be a surprise for another wonderful visit to the yards at a 
later date. 

After our highly instructive tour of these magnificent yards, the beys 
from the Examiner Staff had the priviledge of meeting Mr. Tacky Veliotis, who is 
the man that runs the shipyard so smoothly and efficiently. We all sat down at 
the table and had an excellent meal which was followed by an interesting speech 
from our host. The head of the expedition said a few words of thanks, in reply, 
for the kind hospitality that we had received from Davie Shipbuilding Company, 

We returned home with our heads buried in the pamphlets that they gave 
us and filled with exciting thoughts of shipbuilding. The thing that left the 
most lasting impression on us vras the tremendous size and bulk of the ships. 
The Examiner staff were also lucky enough to be given real construction hats,

It was felt by the masters and students of our School that the old 
system of house competitions needed revising and that if it was reorganized that 
it could be a great benefit in stimulating interest in various areas of the 
school. The new system has four specific areas; academics, athletics, extra- 
curricular activities and citizenship. 

In the acadamics section, boys will be able to contribute points for 
their house in academic achievements. Such competition will hopefully encourage 
boys to strive for higher marks, and recognize achievements of boys as shown in 
the standard achieved or in the effort put forward. 

The inter-house sports competitions hope to recognize efforts as a team 
and not of individual results. 


This year, points will also be awarded for participating in extra- 
curricular activities. Boys will receive points for participating in various 
non-academic areas of the School. 

The fourth section is citizenship. Though the name of this area is new, 
you will all likely know of it. Points will be awarded for such things as the 
Lucas Medal, The Jeffrey Russel Prize etc. 

The school year will be divided into three stages that will be called 
sections. At the end of the first and second sections, the winning house will be 
announced, based on overall points accumulated during that section. Members of 
the winning house will get a half holiday and the house banner will be displayed 
prominently throughout the school during the next section. The approximate 
dates of the sections goes as follows » 

First Section - a week after the November exams. 

only aut\amn terms sports will count. 

Second Section- At the close of the winter term. . 

Points for academics vrill be calculated from 
the Febiruary exams. 

Third Section - At the close of the School year. 

Points will be calculated on the year's 
overall performance. 

Various points will be awarded for each of the different areas of house 
competition. Points for academics go as follovre: 

- 5 points 
^ points 

- 3 points 
2 points 

- 1 point

The total points will be scaled on a maximum of 300 points. 

Each of the sports competitions will be held at the Senior 
and Middle School levels; soccer, hockey, basketball, track and field, seven-a- 
side rugger (SENIOR SCHOOL ONLY) and softball. Track and field points will be 
based on the events held at sports day. 

In each case in the senior school, the winning house will receive 30 
points, second 17, third 9 and the fourth house, 5» In the Middle School, first 
will receive 20, second 12, third 7 and last ^■, The total will be scaled on a 
maximum of i*-00 points. 

Boys participating in extra-curricular activities will be allotted points 
this year. The points will be awarded where there is no specific inter-house 
competition but the boy represents the school at a suitable standard. For each of 
the following areas boys will receive points for their house. 

Drama - A. committee will be made up of the Headmaster and Staff members 
will allocate points, based on that evening's production( s ) . No more than ^1-0 
points will be awarded with no boy receiving more than 5 for his contributions to 
the presentation on or off stage. 

Debating - Each boy who speaks at least twice during the school year in 
a debate in which participants from outside the school are involved will be given 
k points which will be awarded in the third section. 

Choir - Each member of the Choir for a year will receive 5 points to be 
awarded in the third section. 

Book Fair - On the advice of Staff advisers, the Headmaster will award 
20 points with no boy receiving more than 'J-, on the basis of the boy's total 

Science Fair - The winner will receive 7 points, 2nd place, ^ points 
and 3rd place, 2 points. 

Contests - The winner of any contest within the school (not involving 
academic or athletics) will receive ^■ points. A winner of a similar competition 
outside the School will receive 8 points. 

Life Saving - Any boy who earns his qualification by the Royal Life 
Saving Society will receive 7 points. 

Canada Physical Fitness Award - Any boy who earns the "award of 
excellence" will receive 5 points. 

The total number of points will be scaled to a maximum of 200 points. 

Points for citizenship will be awarded as follows: 

The Lucas Medal - 20 points 

The Jeffrey Russel Prize - 15 points 
The T.C.Brainerd Memorial 

Award - 12 points

Recently a rieeting was held ichich resulted in the Staff making the 
decision that it would become less lenient in matters of discipline concerning 
the hiddliJ School. Unfortunately, this decision resulted in a large number of 
canlngsj. It also resxiltod in a new extra set of niles, these actions have been 
regarded as a failure by the Staff to properly train and discipline the boys 
without violence and unusually restricting rules. This is vrritten as a request 
that the Staff not cause further unnecessary pain and grief and, failing that, 
that it do so only in situations which demand it. There is one thing, though, 
■which is most outstanding. The Staff of the Middle School (certain members of 
it) decided to undo in one day danage that has taken years to acciunulate. 



A traditional characteristic of the members of the school body is, 
and always has been, an appalling apathy to the things which go on outside their 
immediate spheres. Your periodical, in its hesitant attempt to stir up such an 
interest, might well be advised to institute a column pertaining to pressing 
problems inside and out of the School. A little argument, and perhaps even 
controversy might stir the student body out of its peiTDetual lethargic, semi- 
somnolent state, and by so doing, improve the atmosphere in an institution which 
has been, and certainly is today, notorious for its internal pettiness and 

Our student council, such as it exists, has always been accused of 
ineffectuality and other, similar cardinal sins in a body of that nature. I 
suggest that the council, in its turn, woiold be far more effectual, and far more 
representative of the students whom they are supposed to speak for, if, instead 
of limiting their examination of yoior newspaper to a rapid perusal of the 
cartoons of your resident -'ARS", and an even more rapid perusal of the valid 
material which charaotorizes your "feature" article, the said students wovild 
take part in a column of some moment which woiild provoke a little mild

The present crop presumably contains enough interested, artioujate, 
and reasonably intelligent people as to terminate the sterile, futile 
atmosphere which seems to prevail at the moment. 

Instead of writing insipid editorials which merely lower the "standard, 
not to mention the circulation of yoiir newspaper, you might well consider the 
allowance of a little constructive, competitive thought in its pages. 

Respectfully yours,

Once upon a time the animals decided they must do something to meet the 
problems of the "NewHorld^', so they organized a school. They adopted an 
activity curriculum consisting of running, climbing, swimming and flying and to 
make it easier to administer, all animals took all subjects. 

The duck was gxcellent in swimming, better in fact, than his instructor, 
and made passing grades in flying, but he was poor in running. He had to stay 
after school and also drop swimming to practice running. This was kept up until 
his web feet were badly worn and he was only average in swimming. 

The squirrel was excellent in climbing, until he developed frustration 
in the flying class, where his teacher made him start from the ground up instead 
of from treetop down. He also developed charlie-horse from over-exertion and then 
got a "C"' in climbing and a "D" in running. 

At the end of the year, an abnormal eel, who could swim exceedingly 
well, and also run, climb and fly a little, had the highest average and was 
valedictorian . 

The prairie dogs stayed out of school and fought the tax levy because 
the administration would not add digging and burrowing to the curriculim. They 
apprenticed their children to a badger and later joined the groiondhogs and gophers 
to start a successful private school.

Sir: .• ■ ■ 

• Par be it from a lowly Scripture master to presume 
to teach the niceties of English grammar to the staff of so 
reputable journal as the S.H.S. Examiner. However, having 
dabbled my feet once in those waters ( in particular connexion 
with ecclesiastical grammar ) , I can only conclude that the re- 
porter responsible for a cer/ain article on p. 14 cf Vol.4 No. 1 
evidently was not paying attention in 1*^^ B at about 2:15 pm on 
Tuesday Sept. 14th. ( What else is new? ) 

Sir , at the risk of boring , may I repeat for his bene- 
fit that an adje:tive (reverend) is not a form of address ("Reverend 
nor. a nounX"The Reverend")- la short , the clergy , though 
(hopefully) reverend, are not ititularly) Reverends. Alsc(parenthe- 
tically), your humblu servant does other things at the church of 
St Columba besides preach. (For further details, come and see for 

I respectfully suggest that your reporter (was it mtdesty 
or shame that caused him to leave his article unsigned?) recicve 
the traditional forty lashes (save cne) with the fringe of his 
prayer shawl. Intellagat lector. 

Bellve me. Sir, to be, 

Yours, etc. (The Rev'd) P.D.Hannen .- 

In replie to the above letter: 

Dear "lowly Scripture master". (Rev'd) P.D.Hannen 

The S.H.S. Examiner humbly, apologizes for its mistake in 
the niceties of English grammar, let it be known that in the last 
issue of the S, H.S. Examiner , p. 14 of Vol.4, No.1 a mistake in par- 
ticular ck^nnexion with ecclesiastical grammar , of which, in those 
waters ^ou have once dabbled your feet, has been made. This mis- 
take being the use ©f the adjective "reverend" as a form cf address. 
We also apologise for insinuating that the only thing you do at 
the church of St Columba is preach, i^nce again on behalf of the 
Exararlner ©ur deepest apologies.

APATHY tl), lack of emotion 
2). lack of interest 

It goes ithout aaying that many of you are askirig ; • 
youselvea what the definition of the word APATHY is doing at the 
top of this page. It also goes without saying that many of you are 
familiar with the definition of the word APATHY. If you have 
notice' students that fulfill th above definition read on. 

It is no surprise to many people tjiat SOME Sclwyn 
House students are apathetic after all every school has apathetic 
studentn. Selwyn House being a unique school it has uniquely apa 
thetic students. These students are apathetic because of the 
general attitude towards the school from their peers outside of 
the schhol. It is no secEet that if you ask a stu ent going to 
either L.C.C, or Westmount High what Selwyn House is like you 
will get a negative response i.e. "Yeah theyfe a bunch mf sues". 
Unfortunately the average Selwyn House Student upon hearing this 
will try to disprove thms hypothesis and will attempt to have as 
little to do with the school as possible. 

Assuming that you are a Selwyn House student let us con- 
sider why you have been called a "sue" because you go to Selwyn 
House, It could be because you wear a uniform however considering 
the state of some Selwyn House uniforms this is a trivial reaon 
besides anybody that .ludgcs you by what you wear is not worth con- 
sidering anyway. It could be because your school has never been 
noted f ^ r its athletic prowess but rather for extraordinary Acad- 
emic escellense but once again this i 1 a rather weak effort at 
explaining this phenomena. The reason for you being called a "sue" 
is that you assume you are one since you have been called one! Or 
rather let us say that if you are aiacng the aforementioned SOME 
Selwyn Houdie Studcns you have assumed this. 

Obviously if you are stupid enough to believe that you 
have been called a "sue" because you go to Selwyn House you will 
try to disassociate yourself with an^' activity that will aesAciate 
you with Selwyn House. Therefore you la<ik «ino-tion towards Selicyn 
House (or pretend to) and prentend to show no in. threat in. Selwyn 
House. You have become an apathetic Selwyn House student .Now 
don't belive that this goes unnoticed because no matter how iiard 
you try you cannot hide the fact that you go to Selwyn House and 
anybody that spends 5 years at a school, and shows no feeling towar- 
it must be a "SUC".

Effective coininunication with the consumer of research remains a 
difficult problem, as Mr. Cljiner indicates. Researchers develop special 
interests and tend to become language-bound. Fortunately, the situation in 
education is not quite so difficult as that reported by F.F.Colton in an article 
for the September, 19^9, Scientific Monthly titled "Some of Lty Best Friends Are 
Scientists. "•'■ lir. Colton wrote: 

A New York plumber of foreign extraction with a limited command of 
English wrote the National Bureau of Standards and said he found that hydrochloric 
acid quickly opened drainage pipes when they got clogged and asked if it was a 
good thing to use. 

A Bureau scientist replied; 

"The efficacy of hydrochloric acid is indisputable, but the corrosive 
residue is incompatible Tfjith metallic permanence.'' 

The pl\mber wrote back thanking the Biireau for telling him the method 
was all right. The scientist was a little disturbed and showed the correspondence 
to his boss, another scientist. The latter wrote the plumber; 

'^-Je cannot assume responsibility for the production of toxic and 
noxious residue vdth hydrochloric acid and suggest you use an alternative 
procedure . " 

The plTiniber wrote back that he agreed with the Bureau - hydrochloric 
acid works fine. A top scientist - boss of the first two - broke the impasse by 
tearing himself loose from technical terminology and writing this letter; 

"Don't use hydrochloric acid. It eats hell cut of the pipes." 

As quo tod by Mr.Clymer. F. F. Colton. 


hr, Rurasby conducted a trip to Quebec City on the weekend of 
November 5-6, maintaining his practice of an annual student Quebec visit. 
Several boys went vdth Mr. Riomsby. We arrived at the Chateau Frontenac on 
Friday, 5th November and our arrival coincided with the visit of Marshal Josip 
Tito, Premier of Jugoslavia. Every alley and every streetlight was accompanied 
by a policeman and roadblocks were set up all arouiid the Frontenac. We passed a 
preliminary guard outside the hotel, who directed us. We were then received by 
an official of the hotel, who informed us that we and our baggage would be 
inspected, presumably for possible weapons. Inside the hotel, police officers 
vrere tvirning all the furniture upside down and people were cordoned off, so as 
not to got in the way of Marshal Tito. 

After waiting quite a long time we saw Tito walk through the lobby, 
though he was obscured by his wife. 

We visited the Basilica of Sto. Anne de Beaupre and the Citadel on 
Saturday, as well as Montmorency Falls, where the freezing foam and spray was

On Romembranco D^y, Thursday, 11th November, a Remembrance Day service 
wgs hold in the gymnasiiom. It was another innovation brought in by 
Mr. Troubetzkoy and I fool that it was an excellent idea. Today, th© meaning of 
Eemcmbranco Day often seems to bo half forgotten. Some people do not oven realize 
its importance. 

On this day, in 1918, "the war to end wars" finally ceased. Eleven 
million soldiers died in that war. Twenty years later, another great war broke 
out. Sevonteon million soldiers died. Since then, other wars, such as th© one in 
Korea, have taken place. Many more men have died in those conflicts. These were 
young men, who might have gone on to become great statesmen, scientists or 
business men, but instead, they gave their lives for an almost pointless cause. 
They gave their lives because the loaders of the world coxold not agree. 

It is these men, almost twenty million of them, to whom vo pay 
tribute on Remembrance Day. These men coiild almost equal the entire population 
of Canada, and yet many Canadians are unaware of what Remembrance Day really 
stands for. This applies especially to the youth of the country, since these 
conflicts occured long before they were born. Their parents almost certainly have 
some memories of the Second World War, but to the youth of Canada, Remembrance Day 
is only a symbol of times long past. They cannot understand the true meaning 
behind it. 

In order to bring on a fuller understanding of Remembrance Day and what 
it stands for, services, such as the one at Selwyn House, are needed. The seirvice 
at Selvryn House, unfortunately, was inadvertantly interrupted when one of the boys 
entered the gymnasium in tho middle of the service, immediately prior to the 
reading of tho roll of Selwyn House old boys who died in these wars. However, I 
feel that the service was a very good thing for the school and I hope to see more 
of this type of events in the futiore.

On October 23 approximately ^0,000 people (mostly teenagers) went on 
the gruelling 32 mile walk. The day started with ideal conditions; it was cool 
and cloudy. Soon, however, the sun started coming out. By eleven o'clock the s\in 
was shining brilliantly, but a cool wind had come up. At the halfway point 
(Jarry Park) lunch was being provided. Walkers ploddod on from there, into 
Outremont, whore they were greeted by large marcher signs. The spot vrtiere many 
marchers dropped out was at St. Jean de Brobeuf Collego. It is interesting to 
note that "brobeuf was the first Canadian martyr! From there, walkers pushed on 
to Place Ville Marie, the finish. Unfortunately, statistics cannot be obtained 
as Tom Agar lost them. Typical!

by a friend of the school. Although this man should be commended 
for his wonderful generosity I cannot see his purpose in don- 
ating 47 copies of a single hook. In fact among the 265 books 
there are; 47 books on machines, 42 books on Italy, 40 books on 
Plight, and 29 books on Brazil. The other topics are: The Sea, 
The Besert, The Forest, Australia, and The United States. 

I am sure that these books are very populal? but I have 
yet to see th day when 47 studios Belwyn House boys will all 
want to take out the same book at the same time. M^ybe we aBc 
all in for a surprise.

A while ago, in the senior locker room, there was a huge mix up. The 
school was replacing old lockers with new ones. Our games master, 14r. Macdonald, 
came to all the senior and middle school classrooms and informed us about the 
switching of lockers, etc. At recess everyone (excluding the juniors) came 
charging down the stairs, bumping into each other, and I don't know why there 
were not any casualties. Wo had to wait until the others opened their jammed 
lockers and when the odd person didn't come, people e-;tarted to throw objects and 
clothes all over. 

Finally, after two days of cleaning up, everything rettirned to normal.

The Quebec Students' Debating Federation organized a seminar, vrtiich was 
held in the gym on Friday, 26 November. Mr. Hill arrived. to supervise fellow 
teachers from schools in the Montreal area, while Geoffrey Hale, President of the 
Selijyti House Debating Club, worked on a chicken. The seminar was quite a success, 
as the participants were treated to rhetoric from Anthony Graham, former Selwyn 
Housor, (now at Bishop's), and Graham Hal 1 ward also represented Bishop's. 

After Mr. T.H.Lawson finished a brief preliminary match-aaking contest, 
(apparently an ancient debating ritual), a group of victims were selected to 
conduct an extemporaneous debate. The topic vras the Admission of Mainland China 
to the United Nations. An unidentified member of the opposition surpassed 
himself in his attempts to defeat the Government, but he was rudely interrupted 
by hystjnrical bursts of laughter from the audience. 

Then the Bishop's - Miss Edgar's debate came. Bishop's fared better than 
did Hon. Joe Borowsky against Women's Lib., and the debate was usefiil in that it 
showed what could happen to debaters with a poor argument. 

yir, Lawson then gave us a lecture on techniques of debating. The speech 
was very informative and 1^. Lawson, (National Coordinator of the Student Debating 
Federation), stressed the importance of debating competitions all over Quebec. 
After all this, we were greatly in need of refreshments, so coffee and cookies 
wore served.

The purpose of this pap^r is to explain why the monarchy 
is vital to the survival of 6anada as an independent, united, de- 
mocratic North Merican Nation, of unmistakable Canadian Identity, 


The parlimentary system of government, of which the mon- ' 
archy is the core, is the sole domestic -uarentee that Canada can s 
survive as an independent nation, in that the political absorption- 
of a m<^narchy by a foriegn Republic other than by open act of war , 
is impossible. If Canada became a republic, the presidential office, 
if held by a despot or influenced by a despotic group of political 
persons, cculd facilitate such a union with the only public resist- 
r- ,ance possible being that ^provided by- civil war. This could lead to 
the political destruction of the nation.. 


The Canadian i-.onarchy is the greatest single factor, rther 
than bilingualism, which can provide Canada with a unique identity 
in the ..'estern Hemisphere, Adherence by the Canadian people to the 
concept of iionarchy will ensure that the character of this country 
developed over its more than 100 years of existence, will not be- 
come entirely obliterated by the political, cultural, and social 
concepts of the United States. 


The Canadian ixonarchy provides the people of Canada with 
the greatest constitutional safeguard against Communism, or any 
other form of totalitarian government or dictatorship, by protecting 
any political head '^f the government from the temptations of becom- 
ing a Castro, a Nasser, or a De Gaulle, , 


The Canadian Monarchy provide^ the surest gunrantee that 
the traditional rights of both the .::nglish-speaking and French- 
speaking section of the population are safeguarded, since its exist- 
ence does n<^t allow ultimate p^wer to rest in the hands of political 
leaders of either linguistic and cultural group to the detriment of 
the ether group, 


The Canadian Monarchy has proven that it provides a source 
of strength and a source of inspiration as a symbol of unity in 
times of great national danger, and a focal point of loyalty above 
political, longuistic, cultural, class, and eithMc dissent, without 
which t>tie collapse of order and the loss of cohesidn at critical 

periods in our past 'history could have proved fatal to the nation, 


The Canadian Monarchy provides a focal point of national 
acceptance fot* the many new Canadians of differing backgrounds, in 
that the i'lonarch herself is not only of English, French, Scottish, 

and vJelsh blood, but also of German, Dutch, Danisii, Hungarian, 
and Italian ancestry. 


The Canadian monarchy, because of the special character- 
istics mentioned above can serve as the most adequate bridge between 
the Canada of the early 1970s and the Canada of the 21st Century. 
The next three MUM^IM. decades will be critical ones for Canada 
and may well lead to political and social contests which could re- 
sult in the breakup ©f the nation. French and English confrontations 
could bring about a divided Canada, .Economically weaker parts of the 
country in their desperation might repudiate their heritage for t 
the economic survival offered by absorJ)tion into the United States. 
It could be that only the stronger parts of the coubtry would remaim 
as a rump of Confederation. If this situation is to be avoided until 
the predicted population of 50 million by the year 2000 makes Can- 
ada a politically and economically viable statw, despite the enorm- 
ous proportions of the United States, it will probably only be 
because the Canadian Monarchy will, as in the past, provide the 
bulwatk to contain those pressures. 


On December 3 rd, we enjoyed a charming experience in 
the form of a visit from the Youth Theatre j who presented 

" Children of The Sun" , an Inca play. The boys of grades 3 and 

4 participated in the play and enjoyed miming the roles allotted 

to them. Later they were congratulated by the cast for their 

involvement in the production. We hope for further visits from 
this group.

A debate was held in the Gjnnnasiim some time ago between Mr. Norman. ..„. 
Lewis and the Reverend Father Peter Hannen. The topic was "Resolve that 
Theology is a Science" and Father Hannen had the affirmative. The debate was the 
first that many of the Senior School had over seen. Father Hannen explained how 
helpful the school libraiy might have been to his opponent, l-'ir. Lewis, and how 
helpful various students had been with respect to the growth of the school 
library. lir. Lewis spoke in somewhat scientific and theoretical terms, but was 
greatiy handicapped when there was not stifficient time for a rebuttal. Father 
Harihen was therefore able to deliver "last licks' in the second part of his homily. 

Mr. lioody subsequently made his humorous closing remarks, suggesting 
that the debaters might speak in terms which the audience could understand, (for 
example, Mr. Lewis and Father Hannen touched on the theory of 'a cause and effect"). 
Mr. Hill then closed the 'Great Debate'' , hoping that the Senior School and Staff 
would find their meal "palatable".

Vt. Crisp, the choir leader, has now organized a special choir which 
pra^rtices during the activity period in St. Mathias Chtirch. The choir is 
composed of boys from grades five, six and seven who enjoy singing. With

the boys that are participating I am sure Selwyn House is going to have a fine 
choir this year.

It all began when Adele Sterntfeal contacted Mr. Martin and -asked him to 
send some representatives from Selwyn House to Tween Set. Richard Small was one 
of them. He was chosen because of his knowledge in all fields. When Richard 
puts his brain to work he is brilliant. After the first game he was thrilled to 
have won by a very small margin, then a thought dawned upon him. He thought that 
he could win five games in a row, which all the contestants of the game were 
trying to do. The second and third games Richard won easily with no competition 
at all. Ifter each win, his hopes rose, and Richard was all set for the fovirth 
game. The fourth game troubled him but at the end, he won by a very slight 
margin. He was lucky. Now his hopes of winning the final game shot up, but 
like the 2nd and 3rd games there was no competition and Richard won. the

Recently Mr. Troubotzkoy had three distinguished guests at the School, 

The first was Mr. Fagan, who is one of Ilr. Troubetzkoy' s personal 
friends. He works in the Secretariat at the United Nations. He assisted the 
group of beys from Sclwyn House who visited the United Nations to intoi-view the 
Canadian delegate there. 

The second was I4r. Collingham. He is the father of two boys of the 
School and is a member of the School's Board of Governors. 

His final guest was Mr. Webster. He is also a member of the Board. 
He appeared at an Assembly and, as a surprise, brought along Steve Renko of the 
Montreal Expos. This proved to be a sensation with the boys. Steve gave a short 
talk and then concluded with a question and aaswer session. This event was a 
great success and I hope that more of this tjrpo can be organized. 



Mr. Porter was bom in Toronto, Ontario. He attended Upper Canada 
College and then wont to Carlton University for four years. He majored in 
English and History and gained B.A. in History and a minor in English. Mr. Porter

St. Vincent de Paul is just thirty minutes from downtown Montreal, 
located in a quiet spot by the back river. The penetentiary is divided into three 
main parts j maximum, medium and minimum security. There are places in the prison 
where the prisoners can work on jobs, or they can play ball in the yards. The 
prison is like an institute to take care of the prisoners while they stay at the 
prison. Friends of ours go to the prison every Wednesday night and talk to the 
prisoners about their problems and the "outside". When an ex-convict is looking 
for a job, he has money problems because of his criminal record. When the 
criminals get out of prison they cannot get a job. 80^ have no friends because 
their family ignores them. As a result, some of them end up back in prison " 
because of stealing money to support themselves and they are caught again.

On October 20, I97I9 a pianist named Cecil Meade came to S.H.S. and 
performed f or Gr?de ?. Dr. Meade played many interesting and educational pieces, 
most of which he had composed himself. In fact, he even composed on the spot 
pieces just for us. He was very pleased at the end of his performance because 
the audience. Grade 7, had been so attentive, and after it was over he was asked 
for his autograph many times. 

Dr. Meade has knoxm i4r. A.S.Troubetzkoy for many years. Dr. Meade 
played at B.CS. about ten years ago when lyir. Troubetzkoy was teaching there. 
When Dr. Meade was in Montreal, Mr^ Ti*oubotzkoy contacted him and ho asked him to 
play at S.H.S. This was the first time he had ever played in Montreal. 

Dr. Meade left for Chibougamou on October 23 » but he will be back in 
Mi^y or even sooner. 

/' If any boys would like to buy the record he produced, it can be bought 
at tiie International Music Store. Boys can contact Dr. Meade at Coaticook, 
Quefcoc, Canada for information, or if they are interested, they could come and

O n Rhythm 

On November 2, Grades 4,5»6 and 7 went to the children's concert at 
Place des Arts, where Mario Duschenos was conducting the Montreal Symphony 

First Monsieur Duschones told the audience. how rhjrthm controlled, to a 
great extent, the sound of a tune, which was demonstrated by the orchestra. Then 
whole notes, half notes and so on were demonstrated ■ and commented on. After this, 
several well-known pieces were played 1 Sachs's, "The Passion according to 
St. Matthew*', Kabalevsky's, "Comedian's Gallop", Debussy's, "Styrinx" and ., 
Stravinsky's, "Couplet du Diable" from "Histoire du Soldat". 

M.Duschenes and the orchestra then demonstrated how the length of notes 
could change rhythm. 

Since dances are usually very rhyt,hmic, they constituted an important 
part of the concert. Pavare, Gaillarde, Ronde and Hoboeckentanz , all by Tielman 
Susato and all beautiful dances, were played. Then dances from covmtries all 
over the world were played. They were from Spain, Austria, South America, the. 
United States, Canada and Scotland. The latter was compared to a '-'Gigue" by 
Bach, as it was a jig. Then -'Liimberman-' Alphabet, by Kelsey Jones was played. 
It was followed by a piece vdth three separate rhyt.hms. Then, "Buckaroo Holiday", 
by Aaron Copland was played. For the final section of the concert, variations of 
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" were played. I, for one, certainly enjoyed the 
concert and I am sure that most others did also. I, vrish to thank all 
responsible for bringing it about and especially M.Mario Duschenos and the 
Montreal Sjmiphony Orchestra.

Reporter: How did you get into pro baseball? 

Renkoj I started playing pro baseball in 1965* I was in a college league 

in South Dakota ■trtiere I was drafted by the Nets. I taUcod to a scout 
from that area and decided that I wanted to go ahead and play 
professional baseball. I still had a year of college ability left 
but at the time the baseball coach at this particular town was from 
the University of Kansas, where I went to school and we were not getting 
along too well. I was ready to play baseball and just went ahead and 
signed and forgot about football and everjrthing else. 

Reporter! What team did you sign with first of all? 

Renkot I signed with the New York Mets. I xra.s drafted as a first baseman: 

and played three and a half years as a first baseman before I changed 
to pitcher. 

Reporter: How long do you think it will take for the Expos to be in close 
contention for first position in the East for the Penn&ht;? 

Renko: Well, that is a tough question for an expansion ball club. It'took 
the Mets eight or nine years to win a Pennant- I think maybe in the 
next three or four years we will be a contender. I am not going to 
say we are going to win the Pennant in the next three or fovir years 
but, there is a good possibility we will be a contender in the next 
throe or four years. 

Reporter: What was your biggest thrill while playing in a pro baseball game? 

Renko: Oh, I think there was a couple of them and they happened this year. 
I pitched two 1 hit games and that is about as close as you can get 
to a no hitter and I was really thrilled about both of them. 

Reporter: Have you ever pitched a no hitter in pro baseball game? 

Renko: I have pitched a no hitter in a pro baseball game in double baseball, 
in Memphis, Tennesee. I was really thrilled about that too. 

Reporter: VJhich pitch do you find most effective? 

Renko: Oh, I think any slider is ray best pitch and it varies on a given day. 
You might have a little better fast ball and you use your fast ball 
most often but overall I find my slider the most effective. 

Reporter: It is true that while in college you proved yourself as quite an 
outstanding football player. Why did you choose baseball over

Renko; Well, I played football extensively in high school and college and at 
that time enjoyed it more than I did baseball. I was then drafted by 
Minnesota to play football and it was not until that point that I 
realised how tough a life of pro football would be. I was then asked 
to play for the Mets. I followed up the offer and went ahead and 
played baseball and forgot completely about football. 

Reporter; What position did you play in football? 


I played quarterback.

Scotty Bowman, the new coach of the Montreal Canadiens has a tough 
act to follow. The Canadiens , third irv. the East during the regular season last 
year stunned the rest of the N.H.L. by charging to the Stanley Cup under ex- 
coach Al MacNeil. 

Ptwman's first problem will be the retirements of Captain Jean 
Beliveau and rugged John Fergusson. Both players, vital cogs in the Canadien's 
machine, decided to go out on top and announced after Montreal captured the Cup 
that they would not retu^^fi fss^qthe 1971 - 72 season. 
S .oM .♦i .loV 

Part of the solution may come from the amateur draft. Montreal owned 
the top pick of the graduating junior class, thanks to a prior tr^de with 
California. And the Canadians chose an outstanding center, Guy Lafleur of the 
Quebec Reraperts.

Attempt At Freedom 

It was now over two hours that David had been free. 
He ran through thft deep snow into the thick of the forest where 
no one would dare look for him. He paused to rest, leaning against 
a thick tree, thinking of all the things he would do now that 
he was free. He was overjoyed to be outside the walls that had 
guarded him for fourteen yeats. He slackened his pace for a while, 
but picked up when he heard the distant sound of the blood- 

Iicivid was unbelievably tired. He had covered eleven 
miles since the time when he hroke through the outer gate at the 
penitentiary. But his want for freedom gave him the strength 
to keep on going. He hoped' that more snow' would fall to cover 
his tracks but this seemed unlikely. He tried to walk a little 
faster, but he began to stumble more often, and_the sounds of 
his approaching captors grew ever closer. 

Dusk fell quickly and David began to have trouble pick- 
ing out his path. He could now see the big searchlights far be- 
hind him, and he knew that the police were hot on his trail. 
There was no letting go now. It was everything or nothing. With 
the last few ounces of strength in his body he surged forward. 
He became delirious and clumsy. David stumbled and was caught in 
the penetrating beam of the searchcight. He picked himself up 
and made one final attempt at freedom. He lunged into the dark 
of the woods, staggered, and fell, his face buried in the white

On Capital P\inlshment in the Schools 

The institution of Capital Punishment, though long 
under fire from liberals and huminitarians of all persuasions, 
has once more become popular in our society. If not formally 
undertaken by it, institutionalized execution is very much a 
part of modern society. After all, howxelse could one describe 
the carnage wreag:ed by that Great American institution, the 

Although our roads are overcrowded and impersonal, 
they serve several important purposes, one of which is that of 
providing a means of going from place to place. Another inter- 
national institution where the same plan of action, in other words 
Capital Punishment would be of as great use as in any other, is 
the modern:.North American educational system. 

Long acknowledged to be overcrowied, and thus to be 
insufficient for the needs of the comparatively few people who 
truly need fifteen years schooling, and now rendere.^ increasingly 
impersonal by the advent of the computer, and of other mechanical 
teaching aids, the thinning out ofvthe school body by such means 
would provide untold benefits in terms tf learning of activities 
and enjoyment, not to m ntion these of discipline and self-dis- 
cipline, cpmmodities not overly plentiful in a modern world 
where emotion is somehow equated with hiimanity. The schools, as 
they stand at the moment, do not fulfill their role in society. 
Restriction to a meritocracy is not sufficient. Only the the action 
of capital punishment will provide for a true education for a 
true elite. 

The bemofits of this step for society arf.- innumerable. 
Less of the \mtold and increasing billions, much of it misspent, 
now used for educational purposes of the hoi-pollai would leave 
the national wealth, and permit us to enjoy its constructive use, 
( As one prominent educator noted ; "Who says that the peasants 
aeed all that schooling?") 

In addition to this, the situation thus established 
would prelude serious over-population, and would contribute 
graetly to stability of all kinds throughout the world. The school 
system as it stands today, is a breeding ground for unpractised, 
socially-dangerous ideologies, and most of the undissipated hypo- 
critical egalitarians which plague society today. Surely capital 
punishment wouSd not slter its status but for the good.

An old time movie house charged admission prices of 
25 cents for adults and 10 cents for children. If the 
cashier in the box office after closing time counted 
the ticket stubs and found that they totalled 385 while 

the money amounted to S 62.65 how many children 

entered the movie ????? 

John Troublemaker had been drinking too much wine with 

his dinner at the restaurant. He said to the waiter 

I'm a grea' mathematishun, but ther'sh something wrong 
here; every time I add thish bill it comes out different. 

Said the waiter, If you're such a good mathematician, 

solve this problem and I'll tear up your bill entirely. 
Here is the problem: A certain bottle costs S 3.00 more 
than its cork, and the cost of both is equal to 17 times 
the cost of the cork alone. 

What is the cost cf each ????? 

Three youngsters each had some beautiful apples to sell, 
The oldest had 10 aprles, the next yoiinger had 30, and 
the youngest had 50 apples to sell. But here's the rub: 
how could each sell his apples at the same price yet 
receive the same amount of money ????? 



1. Let A = the niiir^ber of aiults 

C = V:^e number of children 

25A = money receiver, froiii adults 

IOC = money received from children 

25A + 100 = 6265 

A + = 385 

-100 = -6265 

250 = 9625 

150 = 336C 
= 224 

Hence 224 children entered the movie 

224 children at 10 cents = S 22.40 
161 adults at 25 cents = 40.25 

2 62.65 

2. If the cost of the cork is l/l7 and that of the bottle 
is 16/17, then the total cost would be 17/17. 

The difference between the cost of the bottle and the 
cost of the cork, or 16/17 ani l/l7 is 15/17 which is 
S 3.00 . If 15/17 = S 3.00 , then by inverting 15/17 
to 17/15 and multiplying by 3 dollars, or 17/15 x S 3 
you'll get S 3.40, the total cost. Hence. l/l7 x 5 3.40 
equals 20 cents, the cost of the cork, and 16/17 x JB 3 
equals S 3.20, the cost of the bottle !!!!! 

The boys discovered that if the^" sold their apples in 
multiples of 7 and charge a nickle for each 7 .-If any 
apples were left over, they should be sold for 15 cents 
apieceTherefore, , the oldest sold '7 of his apples for 
5 cents and the threa left over for 45 cents. The second 
boy sold 25 for 20 cents and the other two for 15 cents 
apiece, while the youngest sold 49 for 35 cents and 
the, one left over for 15 cents. Thus each boy received 
50 cents. (many other answers are possible)

5). On Friday , January 24 , 1806 a celebration wi.s held by more 

than 1 GO people at -Montreal's City Tavern. The news of the great 

British naval victory at Trafalgar had ^ust reached Canad"^, On the 

same day at the Exchange Coffee House that stood near the corner of 

St. Paul's and St. Peter's Streets a subscription was opened for 

the erection of a monument to the heroic Lord Nelson . The Statue, 

costing 1 ,3'^0 pounds Sterling , stands on Jaques Cartier Square 

It is 58 ft. high and has been criticized because Nelson's back is ' 

tp th waterfront. When the monioment was erected he was also facing ■ 
the local ;]ail 

6 & 7). Ogden Nash wrote : " No McTavish was ever lavish ". Sir on 

McTavish , howeve,^ , enjoyed " good wine , good oysters , and pretty 

girls". He made his fortune in the Canadian Pur Trade, In 1793 at v 

the age of 41 he married 18-year-old Marie Marguerite Chaboillez. 

They lived in Millionair"- Styl on St. Jean Baptiste Street and gave 

the most lavish parties in the colony. La Maison McTavish is the 

third hoi,ise up from St. Paul's Street. 

8), The spiritual force behind the establishment of Montreal, 1 642, 

was ChEistian and Missioiary, and its purpose was to convert the b 

heathen Indians. A group of pious French with connections at court 

founded the Associ's de Notre Damr pour la conversion des Sauvages 

de la Nouvelle France, in Paris. In 1 64O the members of this group 

were made Seigneurs - Manorial Lords of the island of Montreal , 

The first colonists about 50 in number landed on the island and 

settled by Place Royale. They reverently narred their settlement 
Ville M/^rie, 

9), The Breton mariner, Jaques Cartier , was the first European t^- 
reach the site of Montreal. With six gentlemen and 25 sailers he lai 
dcd , October 1535, close by an Indian village not far from and per- 
haps partly on the slopes of Mount Royals* He thus established the 
primacy of French interests in wfeat was to become New France. 
10). The name ount Royal was given in honor of Cardinal Hiprolyte 
de Medici , Archbishop of Montreal in Sicily, The Archbishop ha-i 
worked hard in order to get papal permission for the exj edition to 
the New World. The first use of th . name Montreal was in 1635 when : 
it was ap, lied to the whole island. 

11). An obleisk marks the site wher^- Maisoneuve erected a fort, 
chapel and a few houses. This spot is Montreal's crib. Two blocks 
a'' ay is the Place d'Armes. It was the scene of a bitter encounter 
between the French and the Red Indians. The settiers fought the 
Iroquois and Maisioneuve personnaly killed the Indian Chieftan in 
hand-to-hand combat. The Monument to Maisoneuve is in the middle of 
Place d'Armes, 

12). At the corner of Notre D me btreet and St. Denis Street stands 
Notre D-me de Bonsecours church al o called the sailors church. In 
its basement a display of dolls tells the story of Marguerite Bourg 
eois, beaified by the Pope in 1950. Marguerite Bourgeois opered - 
Montreal's first school in 1657. The displays of dolls, divided into 
58 scenes each embellished with accurately constructed model furni- 
ture, is a permanent memoriak to a woman with a mission. 
13). The "mother" church of Montreal, Notre Dame is a replica of itt 
Paris namesake. It was buix in 1825 by the American Architect James 
O'Donnel. The church; flanking one side of Place DArmes, contains 
some superb wood carvings. Within it hangs tho enormous bell, Le 
gros bourdon, weighing "4, /SO pounds. It is only rung on very 
special occasions. Notrea Dam.e s corner Stone wa,s laid in September 
1824. First High Mass was sung there i' July 1829*

/ On NovGirtier 25 » 1971 9 Philip Hall and Edward Schwartz went to interview 
Colin McDougal, a Canadian author, about his book, "Execution", and his short 
story, "Firing Squad". Colin MoDougal was born in Montreal in j.9\?» Ho went to 
McGill University and after gr? ducting, went direc'cly into the war. At the time 
"Firing Squad" was writcen, Maclorns Ha gazing hold a literary contest. 
, Mr. McDougal entered "Faring Squad'' and won first priz.o. "Ebtocution-" is an 
enlargement of "Firing Squad''. "Execution" was published simultaneously in the 
U.S.A., Canada and Englriiid. "Execution" was on the Canadian best seller list, 
selling over 100,000 copies. "Execution' and "'Firing Squad" arc about a young 
private sentenced to death. You vdll h?(ve to road the book to find out what

I was asked by the Editor of this paper to write a record column and 
that is sort of what this is. 

As a writer, reviewer or whatever, I find nryself in a very sort of 
weird situation. I suppose I could say that Grand Funk's latest album is terrible 
without having listened to it, or I could say that Emerson, Lake and Palmer's ' 
latest is terrible, after listening to a few cuts or, I could go on about 
commercialism and trash in the music field today. Whatever I say,. I dp not think 
would have much effect on anyone except those that ?\re not really into music. 
(Jimi Hendrix is great! )• AH the Black Sabbath freex would get mad because my 
tastes are different ... it is pure academic discussion on whose tastes are valid. 

Now that I have shoiAn thai, tl.ere is no use writing about music, I 
suppose I will have to be a h„ n.)or.i -^o ar 1 continue with just one warning - 
Frand'Funk freex watch out, yo::. at tiis expense of your own time and anjn^Jay, 
you already know what I am going to say, don't you? 

As some of you might have known or guessed, I do not think much of the 
latest wave of music, the super heavy groups - Grand Funk, Black Sabbath, 
Emerson, Lake and Palmer (espoCially t'f-^ •=? 3. r latest piece of ...). Led Zeppelin, 
The Stooges, The Deviants, eto. 5 T -.Ic no': liko their music and though I suppose 
I could put foirward logical ard '^;cbvju/it j;^-a'ions, it is basically a matter of 
emotions. Music attacks the evYj'i^ir-s ^x.1-\::Q emotions classify it as a really 
super good or grotesquely bad ', j.~-.:c!- ;r.v«<5>,jri»l.'?ro in between). Our minds then invent 
reasons for our choice because r:-u.v.r:.'3 :irt3 ;.;y-. posed to be logical and emotions are 
seldom logical. I sincerely hope t'l-, I. .5'ou i...sten to the music that you like and 
not vAiat someone else tells you to- If yoar thing is the Partridge Family, Grand 
Funk, Chicogo, Hendrix, etc., then listen to it because that is what you like and 
you ain't going to like anything else. 

However, along with this, do not keep a closed mind. Try and expose 
yourself to the many types of music - then choose what you are going to listen 
to. Discriminate only after you know everything. 

If you can figure out what went on above, you are gonna make it in 
life - believe me. .Inonymous.

(Classic Edition) - SRM 1-609 

This is Rod Stewart's second (maybe third) solo effort. Gasoline Alley 
being his first, (or is it his second?). Once upon a time, Rod Stewart was in 
a group with Elton John, John Baldry and several other vinknown musicians. Later 
on, he was lead singer with the Joff Bock Group, which makes Beck's albums worth 
listening to. He is presently with the Faces who used to be the Smsll Faces 
when Steve Mariott, (now of Humble Pie), was with them. (I love doing these 
reviews to show off ray profuse knowledge of music, if not of English). 

If you liked Gasoline /\lley, you will like this one. The musicians 
styles lean towards the blues all the slide guitar, (played excellently by 
Long John Baldry' s guitarist), and rinkle tinkle piano. It is an album that 
despite excessive airplay, I still like to listen to, without having to skip over 
certain cuts, host of you have probably heard most of the albvim and will agree 
with me in saying that is a must for any music freak - and surprisingly enough 
it will probably satisfy even the uncialturod oar.
